Run over a distance of 2,500 metres, the SA Fillies Classic takes place as part of the Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival. The SA Fillies Classic is run under set weight conditions and is open to three-year-old fillies only. The race is worth a total of $115,000 in prize money.

The SA Fillies Classic was first run in 1951 when it was won by a horse named Gay Comedy. The race was originally called the South Australian Oaks, however, changed to SA Fillies Classic in 2009. The SA Fillies Classic was first held over a distance of 10 furlongs (approximately 2,000 metres) until 1986 when it was increased to 2,400 metres. The race was held over 2,500 metres for one year in 1995 and then from 2012 onwards.

The race was initially run as a Principal race before being given Group 1 status in 1980. The SA Fillies Classic was downgraded to a Group 2 race in 2005 and then again to a Group 3 in 2007.

The SA Fillies Classic is run on the same day as the Group 1 The Goodwood, Group 3 The Jansz, Listed Laelia Stakes, Listed Port Adelaide, and the Group 3 Proud Miss Stakes.

Notable winners of the SA Fillies Classic include Rain Amore (1970), Casey Belle (1983), Lady Liberty (1988), She’s Archie (2002), Dream The Dream (2006) and Precious Lorraine (2011).
